Here's something you don't see or hear often: a present-day commuter train with a Leslie RS5T horn (a.k.a. "The King of Horns").

Here's a video of a restored Ashton valve steam whistle. Minus the locomotive!

I've been researching the Ashton Valve Co for a couple of years. They manufactured a variety of Railroad related items including safety valves, gauges, whistles, etc. If anyone has any information on the company please contact me.
